THEY’RE more used to clearing away the leftovers...
But staff at Sheffield’s waste contractor Veolia proved they are also aces in the kitchen - by showing off their culinary expertise in a charity ‘bake-off’.
Staff took part in the contest to raise money for the Sick Children’s Trust, producing a range of sweet and savoury treats which were judged by managing director, Nigel Williams.
Angela Priestley was declared the winner for her scrumptious carrot cake at the event, which saw staff raise more than £75 for the charity.
They also donated items from the Sick Children’s Trust ‘wish list’ - which included a microwave, salt and pepper pots, cutlery, kitchen bins, tea towels, kitchen foil and washing-up brushes.
They will be given to the charity’s Treetop House, which provides accommodation for the families of patients at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Ann Wyatt Treetop House manager, said: “The donated items and money will be treasured and help us on our quest to provide the highest possible level of care and comfort for the families staying with us.”
Nigel Williams from Veolia said: “Angela’s carrot cake was delicious and won hands down - certainly a recipe for success! It is great to see staff getting involved in a bit of friendly competition and donating to a local charity at the same time.”
